Whilst GCSE results day marks the end of one journey is signifies the exciting beginning of another. Today marks the day that many of you will be accepting your college placements, or apprenticeships ready for the next stage of your education.

This year summer examinations were cancelled again, and you were all awarded your GCSE results based on Teacher Assessed Grades. These grades were based on the evidence that you produced over the past two years, including your in-class assessments, mock assessments, internal assessments, and formal assessments in the sports hall, all supported by your coursework-based tasks. The volume and quality of the evidence you produced is something to be proud of.

Sitting exams is an experience that can be very stressful, however knowing that each of these different assessments would be providing evidence to support your Teacher Assessed Grade, has possibly been even more so. I hope you are now able to take a deep breath and relax as the waiting is over and the results are in. I hope that you and your families will be able to celebrate, as the grades that you have achieved will allow you to pursue the college/sixth form courses or other education or employments routes that you chose. I believe that these grades are truly deserved and reflect the hard work that you all put in.

On behalf of all the staff here at Cornelius Vermuyden School I would like to wish you all the very best for your futures. We are proud of your achievements and look forward to hearing about your future successes.
